PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fall is in the air! Here are 75 autumn themed writing prompts (in a PowerPoint) with six different styles of prompts, and one rubric. Each prompt style targets a different writing skill: sensory details, connotation/tone, word choice, fiction, nonfiction, and using dialogue effectively.

Slide Style Breakdown:

1. Fill in the Blank (15 prompts) - Parts of the sentence have been blanked out, and students must fill in the blanks with phrases, descriptions, and sensory details of their own.

2. Sentence Twister (12 prompts) - Words in the sentence have been underlined. Students must change the underlined word to a simile with a different connotation to change the "feel" of the sentence. (Ex: changing smell to stench or aroma).

3. Word Jumble (8 prompts) -Students must make sentences out of autumn-themed words in a word cloud.

4. Story Starter (15 prompts) - A situation is given to help students write a page of fiction.

5. True Life (16 prompts) - A question is given to inspire students to write a page of nonfiction, usually about their experiences, feelings, or ideas.

6. Dialogue (9 prompts) – A piece of dialogue is given. Students use this piece of dialogue to create a page of fiction, using the dialogue.

Each of these sections is listed and linked to in the PowerPoint's "Table of Contents" slide (pictured in thumbnail).

Want to take these a step further? Here are some ideas:

• Ask for volunteers to read their sentences out loud (This is a lot of fun!)
• Let the students choose what kind of prompt the class should do that day
• Have students save these in a literacy/writing journal. Let them continue their favorite entry at the end of the week.

These are great for warm up/bell work, tickets out the door, and journals. The goal of these prompts was to be broad in their application -- students can practice fiction, nonfiction, and writing techniques such as word choice. Happy fall!
